    Six color desert anorak

    Post by taucco on Tue May 22, 2012 8:16 am

    i bought this anorak, but i don't have any clue about it. It has the DRMO stamp on it, but is new. It is cut quite long, like the night desert parka, it hasn't a hood, but it has epaulets. Button are large and flat ivory colored, while pouches are closed by squares of tan velcro. It is a simple 1 ply cotton construction.



    this is the only tag (beside the drmo stamp and another numeral stamp), i can't read the red stamp on the 09 tag.


    armpits with buttonholes


    Could it be a Saudi first gulf war item?

    That is a very interesting Jacket indeed, a while ago I posed the question of whether 6 colour Jackets where worn in GW1, this could well be what I had in mind at that time.

    I knew they existed as I saw some ref pics in a book, my guess would be that this was a item that may well have been issued to a middle eastern coalition soldier.

    I like it a lot.
